On the worktop next to the cooker is a list of jobs I wrote out on Monday and have asked G to do, this should be on the noticeboard.
The white packet contains some chocolate chip cookies I bought for the children as a mid week treat. These should be in the 'treat basket' not on the kitchen side.
I'd finished with the Flora so this should be back in the fridge.
I've left the cupboard door open after getting out the plate I needed.
Washing up left draining and not dried and put away before I start on cooking this evening's meal and start to make even more mess!
A tin of cat food next to the sink. Bought at 4pm and won't be needed until tomorrow morning so why didn't I just put it away as soon as it was bought indoors?!
If I was just a little tidier and more organised as I went along things would be so much easier. Especially as what you see if more or less the extent of my kitchen work space.
But the gnocchi was a success. Tried with a new recipe tonight. Served it with bacon and baby spinach in a soft cheese and garlic sauce.
EDIT... the sauce was 5 rashers of bacon chopped and fried, 100g baby spinach added and wilted for 1 minute. Stir 3tbsp milk into 150g of Philadelphia type soft cheese with added garlic and then add to bacon and spinach. The cooked gnoochi is then stirred in too.
I'm sure Michela is the best person to give us a recipe but the one I use is from a cook book of potato recipes and is 250g cold mashed potato added to 1oz melted butter, 1 cup flour, a good sprinkling of black pepper and half an ounce of parmesan cheese. Roll into balls. Place in a pan of gently simmering water, when they bob up to the top they are done. Couldn't tell you what they taste like as I HATE mashed potato, but G, T and S eat them ok!
